Word of Alicia:  These liners are a re-release because they originally discontinued them and got so many requests to bring them back that they did.  I remember not loving them before, but I probably tried the black eyeliner and a pencil eyeliner is not what I like in a black eyeliner so I prob was like pass… so this time around I tried an eyeliner in a fun color (in Emerald), a brow pencil because why not (in Blonde), and a lip pencil (in Chocolate).

I’m really glad I did because the Ultra Luxury Lip Liner is Chocolate is now a top favorite makeup item!  Its the perfect nude brown that you can wear alone or with your favorite lip shade.  The pencil gives a nice sharp line while still being soft and comfortable to wear and they sharpen really well too!

I’m not a huge brow person so take my review with a grain of salt, but the blonde pencil is perfect cool toned blonde that works well for brows.  It’s soft enough to easily apply and hard enough not to go on as a blobby mess.  For someone who just fills in and defines every once in awhile this is PERFECT!

The Emerald Ultra Luxury Eyeliner surprised me too!  It’s definitely softer, muted color not as opaque as I usually go for, but sometimes that’s what you want.  If you are not a big eyeliner person and just want a little definition or use it rarely these at $1.75 couldn’t be better.  These aren’t super long lasting but if you pair it with a primer and a good lid shade base color it lasts through the day.

I got these when the first launched earlier in the year so I’ve had some time to give them a good go, not just a first impression.  I do know I’ll be picking up a few more lip shades, Currant has my eye.  In the eyeliners I already got the Sky Blue to try but maybe I should get the Eggplant too!  I mean these are a $1.75!  PLUS on Thursday June 6th there will be a FREE SHIP CODE on a $25 order so would be a great time to get a little makeup order going, maybe swoop on that SSS Bug Guard that’s on sale too!  I’ll keep ya posted when the code goes live at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

How To: Awesome Cat Eye Tutorial with Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg

Everyone who knows me knows I wear a winged line on the daily.  Even if I’m doing nothing else a winged line instantly makes me look awake and bright eyed.  If I could only have one makeup item, well two items, because my first pick would be concealer, but my second would be eyeliner!

I’ve been asked many a times how I do it but it’s one of those things that you need to see, and then practice and practice.  Then I saw this video that Jamie Greenberg did on her youtube channel.  (If you don’t follow her already, do so… like NOW!).  She lays it all out there, shows you how to get the perfect cat-eye AND shows you how to do it with every type of liner!

My daily eyeliner of choice is mark.’s liquid liner, which Jamie demonstrated with first.  The mark. On The Edge Eyeliner has recently been upgraded to a larger size but still a hookup.  Hookups have connectors so you can attach it to other items (other liners, glosses, mascara, etc) to build the perfect makeup bag go to that stashes away super easily!  Which makes it the perfect summer travel beauty must-have!  Check out the mark. On The Edge Liner now in 6 colors!

In addition to mark. On The Edge Liner being updated, so was No Place To Run pencil liners which you saw Jamie demonstrating with using Navy Seal (navy shade).   This was a much needed update, they are much more user friendly and sharpen much better!  Check out my review here.  Navy seal has seen heavy rotation in the world of Alicia.  Even  better news, the felt tip liner is being revamped too!  Launching in August with new shades as well including both matte and shimmer shades.

Being an eyeliner aficionado I can tell you that mark. liners are the absolute best and most affordable I’ve ever used.  For something I use on the daily I need to be able to refresh my stock often and not break the bank.  Even more importantly I need it to look good, last all day and be easy to use!  Check, check and check!  You can shop the mark. eyeliners at my eBoutique:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and be sure to follow Jamie Greenberg on YouTube
